Steryl esters and triacylglycerol (TAG) are the main storage lipids in eukaryotic cells. In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, these storage lipids accumulate during stationary growth phase within organelles known as lipid bodies. We have used single and multiple gene disruptions to study storage lipid synthesis in yeast. Four genes, ARE1, ARE2, DGA1, and(More)
The fatty acid composition and content of membrane and storage lipids of two transgenic laurate-producing rape (Brassica napus L.) lines were monitored during seed development. The two lines, the medium-laurate (ML) line and the high-laurate (HL) line, accumulated 34 mol% and 55 mol% of laurate in their seed triacylglycerols, respectively. The(More)
The composition and positional distribution of lipids in developing and mature transgenic Brassica napus seeds accumulating up to 7 mol% of caprylate (8:0), 29 mol% caprate (10:0) or 63 mol% of laurate (12:0) were examined. The accumulation of 8:0 and 10:0 resulted from over-expression of the medium-chain-specific thioesterase (Ch FatB2) alone or together(More)
This paper presents the results from a project conducted aimed at identifying different categories of customers with respect to their sensitivity towards supply interruptions. Industrial customers connected to the distribution grid were interviewed regarding their sensitivity towards interruptions and how the cost related to the duration of the(More)
